What's the used Honda Jazz hatchback like?

One fact answers that: the Jazz has twice taken top spot in the JD Power customer satisfaction survey and remains the top supermini. It's deeply satisfying to own.

It's good to drive, too. The petrol engines have reasonable pace around town and don't drink much fuel, although you'll need to work them hard to get the most out of them. All the controls - brakes, clutch, gearbox and throttle - gel together perfectly.

The ride can feel too firm at times, but it gives excellent body control and tidy handling. And, keen drivers will want more weight and feel from the steering, although it's nice and light for the kind of manoeuvres that will form the bulk of its daily life.

No-one will find the interior wanting. If Doctor Who drove a supermini, this would be it - small on the outside, cavernous inside.

It's flexible, too. The split rear seats fold flat and the bases can tip up for another self-contained storage area. The back of the front passenger seat folds flat, too.
